I still can’t believe what happened today at this restaurant. I found a metal wire in the soup that I ordered!!!

We went to El Biky’s twice during our stay in Vedado. One evening at 7PM, we stood in line for 30 mns. This hip eatery in Vedado resembles a busy and popular chain restaurant in the US. A squadron of attentive young servers keep the...place hopping. What kept us coming back was the pizza with a cracker-thin crust smothered in mushrooms and melted cheese. The best! On a rainy evening, we restored our souls with large bowls of home-made chicken soup. El Biky’s is just 2 or 3 blocks from the Malecon. This would be first place I would head to if I return to Havana.More

If you are looking for good food at affordable prices this is the place. Large pasta dishes that you can not finish among others. Very good attention. The place is very clear, clean and quiet, its location is very central. They also have a bakery...and is one of the best in havana.More

We focused on the bakery portion of the location. We got food to go from the restaurant, but we thought the bakery was really specially. Some of the best baked goods I've ever had. Particularly enjoyed the vegetable pastry.

We arrived in Havana late in the evening and asked our Casa hostess for a recommendation on a restaurant close to our place in Vedado. She recommended El Biky, which was about 6 blocks away. We were delighted by the venue, food and service at...El Biky. We went there at least 3 times during our week in Havana, trying out both the bar and the restaurant and we were never disappointed by the food, service or cost.More

This restaurant near Parque de los Martires is definitely worth going to. Food is above average and so are wines, service is both friendly and professional while the check is reasonable. Highly recommended as this restaurant is mostly attended by Cubans.

Probably the best place we ate at during our stay in Havana. The food was delicious and the service was right on par with what we enjoy back home in the USA. Make sure you step next door to the bakery before you head home...for some fresh sweet bread for your evening coffee. Any taxi or driver is family with Biky so it’s no problem getting there. Very reasonably priced for a restaurant that has a good mixtos locals and tourists. Everything about Cuba is fun. This is a comfortable clean place for breakfast lunch or dinner (make resurgir dinner or you’ll have to wait). Enjoy TLopez USAMore

One of the cleanest and among the best stocked in Havana. Food is tasty and affordable, you can see your order being prepared, good air conditioning and superb service. The bakery products are outstanding. In breakfast ask for the mixed bread basket, warm & delicious...with fresh Cuban coffee. Lunch and dinner are varied and also good quality. Best value for your money in Havana. We recommend to try rum from Santiago de Cuba province, its outstanding on the rocks. Always ask for bottled water in Cuba, since visitors may not assimilate water from free public sources. It is successfully run by a worker’s cooperative and is an example worthy to emulate all around this beautiful island. Congratulations to all the crew: attendants, bakers and cookers!!!More

Stop! You need to visit here. We had cappuccino and Cuban coffee. Then we saw the bakery items and couldn’t say no. Excellent ham and cheese croissant and pineapple square. Excellent choices. Very fresh and warm. Counter areas are very clean. Staff was quick and...courteous. Expect a wait. It is popular. Lines go quickly.More
